The 2019 edition of Konga Back-to-School, the very successful and widely anticipated annual promotion by e-Commerce giant Konga, ends tomorrow, Friday, September 6th, 2019. The promotion has seen thousands of parents, students, knowledge workers and institutions take advantage of the exciting deals on offer.

However, a number of shoppers have called on the management of Konga to consider an extension to the promotion. Some of the shoppers based their request on the late payment of salaries which prevented them from taking part. Furthermore, they disclosed that many establishments paid salaries in the first week of the month, hence the need for an extension.

In response to the calls, Vice President (Konga Retail), Kalu Johnson affirmed that the promotion is time-bound. Nevertheless, he revealed that Konga management will maintain the same price on limited product categories for another seven days.

“The Konga Back-to-School promotion is time-bound and, as such, cannot be extended. However, Konga is a customer-centric organization and we always aim to please our customers. As a result, Management has resolved to maintain the same price on limited product quantities for another seven days.

“This move is to enable shoppers who could not take part earlier to take advantage. Also, we have received a few requests from some Nigerians returning from summer vacations abroad. This price freeze will also give them ample opportunities to enjoy the unbeatable price offers we unbundled for the promotion.”

Continuing, Kalu disclosed that Konga had seen over 31% appreciation on returns for the Back-to-School campaign.

“We have already achieved over 31% growth compared with last year. This year is particularly successful because of increased awareness and appetite for genuine products by Nigeria. In addition, the ease, convenience and flexibility to shop from Konga retail stores nationwide was a major factor. Also complimenting this is an increased volume of same-day delivery by Express, our logistics arm, for items ordered by shoppers.”
